The youngest son of Hall of Famer George Sisler
and brother of major leaguer Dick
Sisler, Dave was a 6'4", bespectacled Princeton graduate. Upon returning from the
military in 1956, he started and relieved for Boston, but worked exclusively out
of the bullpen after his 1959 trade to Detroit. In 1960 he recorded a career-best
2.48 ERA with seven wins and six saves.
